    Welcome!  I am extremely happy that we are going live again this year and I look forward to offering my students an educational and inspiring year of learning history. In 2022/2022 I'm beginning my 25th year at MacArthur, and I am very happy to be teaching the great Tiger students! I care about each of your children and am thankful to be teaching them Social Studies. A little bit about me: I was born and raised in Santa Ana and attended Sierra Elementary and Williard Intermediate School. I've been married for 29 years and have 7 kids, ages 14 to 28, and one grandchild. 

    I post my activities in Canvas.  Your students are expected to log in here each day to Canvas for their assignments.  All assignments will be started, and most will be finished, during class. Students have vocabulary that they are responsible for knowing, and they will have a quiz on the vocabulary every Friday. EVERYTHING - assignments, vocabulary, quizzes, tests, etc., will be posted in Canvas. If you want to know you your child is doing, please go into Canvas to check their grade. 

    I am available for tutoring every Tuesday through Thursday after school.
